was born in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, surrounded by lakes and forests. A “nature girl” at heart, she has always found inspiration in the humbling power of the outdoors. She studied with M. Wendy Gwirtzman in watercolor; Sari Gaby in portraiture, oils, and pastels; and Pat Tribastone in oils. Many of her works have found their way into private collections worldwide.

It is my intention to share that feeling with the rest of the world through my paintings.” Her work may be seen at http://christinewaara.com.
